21:26:03 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk:

21:27:00 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: that is such a good point--it's not about the technology it's about the learning

21:27:31 [Message] sroseman -> -EdTechTalk: Is it always windy in Wellington. NZ?

21:27:38 [Message] cheri t -> -EdTechTalk: ICT - information communication technology

21:28:40 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: I love that Suzie just blogged about ShareTabs!

21:29:22 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: I agree that we should keep using the tools that work for us rather than constantly changing because something new has come out

21:30:43 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: I always think of NZ as being the leader--way ahead

21:31:35 [Message] LangLabCindy -> -EdTechTalk: Had a rough day today - would love to hear some ideas for helping a long-time teacher see the need to change.

21:32:34 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: Our keynote speaker today at the MEC conference was from the UK-David Whyley and everyone was so inspired by the things he shared about mobile devices that their students are using!

21:41:38 [Message] cheri t -> -EdTechTalk: We could learn so much from school systems in other countries

21:41:57 [Message] cheri t -> -EdTechTalk: too much of the same things that don't work here in the US

21:50:12 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: absolutely Cheri! you can spend hours there and barely put a dent in them

21:52:21 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: love that answer! IT widow :-)

21:53:11 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: I think we've all caught the "bug" :-)

21:53:24 [Message] JAmes Sigler -> -EdTechTalk: I live on a tall hill.  My house is windy, too.

21:53:44 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: if people in the US stay up late you'll get to see some fantastic tweets from Suzie!

21:54:37 [Message] Lorna -> -EdTechTalk: ah that getting carried away sickness

21:57:13 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk:

21:58:03 [Message] cheri t -> -EdTechTalk: Sharon - you'll go crazy with this one

21:58:15 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: it's so easy to forget about the offline software where we get so caught up with the web 2.0 tools that are online

21:59:15 [Message] Maureen -> -EdTechTalk: yes!

21:59:31 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk:

21:59:53 [Message] Maureen -> -EdTechTalk: Kim COfino?

21:59:56 [Message] cheri t -> -EdTechTalk: wow! what a find Suzie is - follow her on Twitter and check out her sites

21:59:57 [Message] kcaise -> -EdTechTalk: sharon is so soft

22:00:00 [Message] Lorna -> -EdTechTalk: wow 2

22:00:13 [Message] kcaise -> -EdTechTalk: much better

22:00:52 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: what a valuable resource to be able to find images, audio, etc!!

22:02:00 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: That's the ShareTabs site Sharon used tonight--Suzie wrote a great blog post about how she's using it

22:02:02 [Message] arvind -> -EdTechTalk: I love using for images

22:02:07 [Message] arvind -> -EdTechTalk: but finding the right one is sooooo hard

22:02:15 [Message] cheri t -> -EdTechTalk: minimizing info-whelm, give it to them in small chunks

22:02:20 [Message] Maureen -> -EdTechTalk: Great resource- making my middle school kids do ppt without bullets or bells and whistles- takes forever to find images they can use. I copped out an had them do planets- most everything on nasa is in the public domain...

22:02:40 [Message] arvind -> -EdTechTalk: maureen, good idea

22:02:40 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: FlickrStorm is also a fantastic tool for finding CC images

22:02:55 [Message] arvind -> -EdTechTalk: the good thing is music played by the naval band, marine band, etc, are also in play

22:03:24 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: good point about why she uses email--you have to "reach" them where they are

22:03:33 [Message] Maureen -> -EdTechTalk: @ arvind- saw your happy tweet today- all the thank yous you got this morning- made me smile.

22:03:42 [Message] arvind -> -EdTechTalk: I actually use pretty well as my library

22:04:03 [Message] arvind -> -EdTechTalk: Maureen, it just totally started my day off right!

22:06:22 [Message] arvind -> -EdTechTalk: ;)
